In November, 14 members of the Imperial Systems team and representatives from across the country travelled to Atlanta for FABTECH 2018. As one of the biggest fabrication trade shows in the country, FABTECH is always an opportunity for us to put the CMAXX and other products on display. It’s also a great opportunity to network and meet others in the industry, including potential new representatives and customers.
“This year was our best turnout ever,” says Justin Badger, Imperial Systems Sales Manager. Not only did the Imperial Systems booth draw attention with its three CMAXX collectors and other equipment on display, but four other companies also had CMAXX collectors in their own booths. AKS Cutting Systems, Koike, Dynatorch, and Plasma Automation each displayed a CMAXX on their own equipment at the show.
Imperial Systems staff and representatives had the opportunity to meet and talk to many potential customers over three very busy days. The Imperial Systems booth looks better every year as the marketing team works with the sales team to draw attention to our products. This year, an exciting new product was the Rhino Drum, an explosion-tested drum kit recently added to the company lineup.
This was the first year for the Imperial Systems booth to display three CMAXX collectors, and the first time four other manufacturers had their own CMAXX collectors on display with their own equipment. FABTECH is a chance every year for Imperial Systems to demonstrate our growth as a major player in the dust and fume collection market.
“It’s an exhausting couple of days, but it’s completely worth it,” a sales representative says. “It’s amazing how many people come by the booth and want to check out the CMAXX. They want to open the doors, try out the lift rails, check out the filters. They’re always really impressed with the quality.” With more people visiting the booth this year than ever before, more people got to appreciate our products and meet our staff in person.
